What do you say when you recieve a gift from someone you love,
Who loves you and it's all wrong,
Do you throw it back at them,
I hope not...
Or do you pretend to love it,
Thinking, 'I would never be caught dead in this mess.'
Or do you regift it to someone else, that you aren't especially fond of,
Praying the person who gave it to you,
Never sees them wearing it?
And I am going to get this out of the way right now...
I KNOW IT'S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS...
I truly believe that when you love someone,
Your focus when it comes to gift-giving is something,
They really want and love, and that speaks to who they are...
And it doesn't have to be expensive,
Well thought out cards are a joy to read, from someone who loves you,
I am known in my families and at work as the card-picking Queen,
I will spend hours reading cards and making sure it is tailored to the recipient,
If people only knew how many cards they recieved from other people, chosen by me...
I do the same with gifts,
During the year,
I engage in conversations with people I love,
Feeling them out as to what they want,
And then at birthdays, Christmas,
They get what they want from me.
I make sure the people who love me,
Know what I want,
Simply because I had some years when things hung in my closet,
Or sat on my dresser,
So I learned to let desires slip out,
Everyone knows that books, perfume and coffee are my vices,
So I casually mention titles, fragrance names and there is a starbucks on every corner,
I know shameless hussy,
I get what I want,
They get what they want,
And we have beautiful thoughts,
As we give and recieve....
IS NO NOT CLEAR ENOUGH FOR YOU?
